There's a webcam at Grand Palladium Resort in Punta Cana showing the beach, you can see it here https://www.palladiumhotelgroup.com/en/webcams (Click Punta Cana then PLAYA PALLADIUM TRAVEL CLUB)It has, to my knowledge never landed in quantity on Cabarete beach. But I have only been here since 2003. Punta Cana seems to have a persistent problem.
How bad is the problem right now in Punta Cana?
I always check it before booking something in Punta Cana.
